On October 30th, an event will be held in Delft to celebrate the recently launched collaboration between various LDE (Leiden, Delft, Erasmus) universities and university medical centers under the banner of Healthy Society.

The TU Delft faculties of BK, TBM, and IO have joined forces to work together in defining urban health, health systems, ethics, and participatory methods that have a real impact on the health of individuals and communities, both locally and globally.

This Healthy Society event provides a unique opportunity to connect with our colleagues from TU Delft, Leiden, and Erasmus Universities, as well as affiliated university medical centers and colleges, under main themes and through interactive workshops, to share successes, best practices, and new directions. This offers opportunities for further exploration beyond the current agendas in health research.
